of the Fund’s most recent investments that displays the asset class diversity of the 100 Mile Fund is the recent historic rehab/construction loan on the 1904 Philadelphia Metropolitan Opera House (which Bob Dylan will be the opening performer in Decem- ber 2018). The 100 Mile Fund has also lent on numerous office buildings, multifamily projects, and condo projects. “Since 2017, we’ve stayed away from luxury, large-scale projects, becoming defensive by financing “recession proof real estate” such as gas sta- tions, fuel truck repair facili- ties, factories … the uglier the better,” said Procida. The 100 Mile Fund has had an average dividend of over 12% annualized since incep- tion. The fund is an open- ended investment vehicle for accredited investors in $200,000 investment units. 
